  • How do I grow crops? aslum

    I've done a bit of looking on wikis and the best I can find is that crops don't grow on all types of dirt, but I haven't been able to find any kind of dirt that can grow crops. I want my Glitch to be a vegetarian but I keep starving to death.

  • Are you using a hoe to till the land first? You have to gather some wood and some cobblestone to make a stone hoe, then till the dirt and plant your seeds in it in order to create a farm. Plain Ol' Dirt won't cut it.

    Looking at this calculator, it doesn't differentiate between the different crop types. I read somewhere that the different crops grow at different speeds, but I can't find any definitive information on the relative crop growing speeds. All I've found are that beans are the fastest-growing of the crops, followed by wheat. Does anyone know how fast the individual crops grow, relative to each other?

  • Is there a good strategy, or layout, for optimizing watering and harvesting your crops in Harvest Moon GBC? I used to seed in separate 3x3 squares, cutting out a tile in one of the sides, so I could water the whole thing in just two uses of the sprinkler. But then I got the golden sickle and golden hoe and that makes it very difficult to create this pattern, given their properties. Is there any way I can use the golden tools to my advantage, saving time and effort to care for my crops?

  • When I start up a new world of Pixelmon in Minecraft, all I have is a level 5 starter, and I'm surrounded by Pixelmon ranging from levels 10-45. Finding a reasonable challenge is, in itself, a challenge. Where can I go in the world to find weaker, lower-level challenges for my starter to grow and fight against? Or am I stuck praying to find a low-level pokemon without accidentally running into a level 45?

  • I heard to unlock crops in A New Beginning you need to grow lots of "base" crops and ship them to unlock the next set. However I've been cooking most of my crops before I ship them for now, since it helps level my cooking and I get slightly more money. Do I need to ship crops or just grow them to unlock new crops?

  • I'm working on a fully-automatic farm now that 1.5 is out. The plan is to use redstone to flush fully-grown crops into a channel to be collected by a hopper and then picked up by a cart. The issue I've ran into, however, is that seeds do no seem to be planted by dispensers or droppers. The wiki says bone meal can be used on growing crops from dispensers, but is it possible to plant the crops from either device? This is my current setup:
